Why Study Art History?

Mona Lisa Learning Art History stimulates the student intellectually, as it is rich in social & political history, as well as, languages & literature, philosophy and many other subject areas. When studying art, it is important to reflect on the work of the Masters—both artwork & writings.

How Great Thou ART has great resources for teaching Art History from a Godly perspective.

God & the History of Art is a two-volume, four-year curriculum for ages 10 & up that features an extensive survey of art history, supplemented with over 250 lessons.

In God & the History of ART DVD Series, Barry Stebbing journeys through the centuries offering biblical insights into the great art and artists of the ages.

Art & the Bible for Children Artwork

Once again, our granddaughters Naiya and Amelia (ages 7 & 9) attended our annual summertime get-together “Pappy’s Summer Camp.” They enjoyed spending another sunny week on our farm. Each morning we would read from Art & the Bible for Children and then give them art lessons to do after the Bible stories. It met with great success!

Please enjoy some samples from their lessons below.

In Christ,
Mr. Stebbing
